Excellent for what it is: an OpenMaps viewer!
This app is a great mobile viewer for OpenMaps maps. These maps, unlike those from Google, have some nice features, including: - Walking / hiking trails often marked - bus stope, mail drops, etc., are often listed - Unlike the Google maps, which legally cannot be pre-downloaded, you can buy a tool in-app to download and cache OpenMaps This last feature is very useful when traveling where you won't have a (cheap) data connection: just pre-download the maps! The drawback of using OpenMaps tiles is that sometimes the data isn't as complete as those from Google, but on the other hand, I often find the OpenMaps tiles better. For what it is, though, this is a great viewer for OpenMaps data. The only thing I would really like to see is a scale bar option, and also speeding up the process of deleting pre-cached maps (which takes inexplicably long right now).

Weak - closest pizza is in Paris
I guess relying on the social networks for all your locations means you won't have any until thousands of people use this app, but thousands of people won't use this app because there are no locations. I live in America, but this is clearly a Europe centric app with all restaurants being in europe. It would be good if they would populate this app with various locations and not wait for customer to do all their work for them. Very weak idea, It looks good, but it is a very weak idea

Quick and really useful update
It's good that an update is already available to fix live tracking and compass mode, which broke with the iOS 4.3 update. It is a pleasant surprise that this update also brings some nice little additions and tweaks aside from the aforementioned live tracking fix. My favorite is the additional info displayed when tapping on my current location(blue ball), namely elevation and coordinates, that's awesome!
